Formula 1 Postpones Bahrain, Vietnam; Season Now Starting in May

After the postponement of the Chinese Grand Prix and yesterday’s cancellation of the grand prix in Australia, Formula 1 has also postponed the Bahrain and Vietnam grand prix, the organization announced Friday, March 13.

As a result, the F1 season is currently tentatively scheduled to begin in May.

“Following the announcement of the Australian Grand Prix’s cancellation this week and the ongoing and fluid nature of the COVID-19 situation globally, Formula 1, the FIA and the promoters have taken these decisions in order to ensure the health and safety of the travelling staff, championship participants and fans, which remains our primary concern,” all involved said in a prepared statement.

Barring further cancellations or postponements, the season will begin with the Dutch Grand Prix on May 3.

F1 is working to find alternative dates for the postponed races, but no further information was announced at press time.
